Fabulous Photos! Some Highlights from the 2019 Banks Peninsula Walking Festival

This years Walking Festival was a huge success, with over 500 participants out and about enjoying all sorts of walks in various locations around Banks Peninsula.

Tom MacTavish lead this group all of the way to the top of Carews Peak.

The Godley Head Antarctic Hut and Penguins walk included a visit to the white flippered penguin colony at Harris Bay as well as a first hand look inside the historic Antarctic Hut that has been relocated to Godley Head.

‘Grunts and Dykes’ in the Le Bons Bay Josef Langer Reserve never fails to provide spectacular scenery!

The Catherine Marshall Reserve above Duvauchelle was a very special event as the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust led walkers through a newly covenanted section of the Reserve.


Watch out for the ‘Allandale to Living Springs’ walk again next year, as it will include a visit to a new section of track that will take you above main campsite through the new plantings of the Living Springs Ecosanctuary.
